People may blast this city, but it's quite nice, there is Whitefriargate with Grainger Games & HMV, the EYMS depot for bus enthusiasts, a bus interchange aswell, you've got the big TV screen in the city centre, Humber Bridge too.
For dinner, I recommend going to Wokka's, they are the No.1 restaurant in Hull and rightly so.
They mainly do Chinese meals, a good variety, though only a few appeal to me. Definitely have dessert and a starter, you just can't leave with just the main meal. £10 for the three course meal, quite the bargain!
